TELSTRA will attempt an Australian first by beaming a live hologram from Melbourne to Adelaide tomorrow morning.
The telecommunications company claims the hologram will reproduce a real-time image of its chief technology officer Dr Hugh Bradlow as he presents a talk from Melbourne.
Telstra is hoping to wow the business audience in Adelaide with a flashy demonstration of its broadband network's data capacity.
The company's media release, issued today, did not detail the technology they would use to display the hologram.
Despite the first static holograms being developed over 50 years ago, dynamic or motion picture holograms are still a relatively new field of development.
Holograms are created essentially using three lasers and a photosensitive screen to capture the light waves and interference originating from an object.
To a person in front of the screen, this creates an image in three dimensions that appears in mid-air behind the screen.
